for starting the special olympics. her family said she set out to change the world and change us. and she did that and more. growing up alongside her dashing brothers, jack, ted and bobby, eunice shriver held a front-row seat to some of the greatest and some of the most tragic moments of the 20th century. but it was an unheralded member of the family, who inspired her life's work. her mentally challenged sister, rosemary. >> she taught us all, that adversity meant almost nothing. and that it could always be fun for all of us to be together. >> reporter: mrs. shriver shared a special closeness with rosemary. spending extra time with her. making sure she always felt included. that was a life lesson she never forgot. >> she founded the scial olympics in 1968, to get people with intellectual disabilities the chance to develop physical fitness, to create friendships and experience the joy of sports competition and achievement. >> well done. >> reporter: the games immediately became much more than athletic competitions. for over 40 years, they have brought understanding, inclusion, and acceptance t
to scotland. diana joining us with more on this dramatic development. diana, tell us what happened. >> reporter: well, wolf, about eight hours ago the scottish justice minister made this announcement, and shortly after that the extraordinary sight of a man who, as you say, has served only seven years leaving the prison behind me a free man. and, remember, he was convicted of killing 270 people in the lockerbie bombing in 1988. so, he's now touched ground in libya. and we heard from his lawyer earlier, really the only statement that anyone has heard from al megrahi over the last eight years. >> many people, including the relatives of those who died in and over lockerbie, are, i know, upset at this end. but nothing more can be done about the circumstances of the lockerbie bombing. i share their frustration. i have most to gain and nothing to lose about the whole truth coming out. until my diagnosis of cancer. to those victims' relatives who hear me say this, they continue to have my sincere sympathy for that unimaginable loss that they have suffered. to those who bear me ill will, th
these charges. we will say, again, as we've said before that we said before when they left u.s. soil, they never intended to cross to north korea. according to the charges, they confessed. so we know they're sorry. we're very sorry. and we hope that the north korean government now will show compassion and just let them come home. >> lisa, i mean, does it concern you that the north korean government is saying they were there for a smear campaign, not acknowledging they were independent journalists? >> all we can say is that they are journalists and they were doing their job. my sister has been a journalist for years. and that's really all we can say. you know, we weren't in the courtroom. we don't know any sort of specifics other than what was released. we just hope, you know, given the fact that we know the girls have apologized profusely, that they will let the girls come home to us. it's been -- it's been three months. and that's been too long for us. >> stay with us. because coming up in five minutes' time, we're going to be talking to victor cha, the director of asian affairs at the white ho

's 48 birthday. we will begin by talking about taxes, the deficit, and the u.s. economy. what are the headlines that we want to bring to your attention? this front-page of "the hill" newspaper. airports that the obama administration on monday quickly shot down a trial balloon that opened the possibility of new taxes on middle-class up for the nba came under heavy fire from labor unions, liberal leaders, and republicans. the press secretary robert gibbs scramble to backtrack on the idea. we will show you later on what he said to reporters at the what does. inside, the reporting of two reporters -- as the economic policy is working, and public appearances the president will attempt to regain the initiative on the economy. it says he has had several weeks of rocky support. we're joined this morning by the reporter from "the washington post." all this dovetails into what we will see later this week as he travels to indiana and tomorrow to detroit. what can we expect? guest: you can expect talk about the reason gdp numbers. never has a shrinking quarter been so welcomed by a white
the heat of the ongoing recession. president obama says the worst of it may, repeat, may, be behind us. >> we have a steep mountain to climb, and we started in a very deep valley. but i have faith in the american people, in their capacity for hard work, and innovation and their commitment to one another and their courage to face adversity. >> we're going to go inside the new unemployment numbers with cnn's chief business correspondent ali velshi and find out who's faring best, who's faring worst. but first our senior white house correspondent, ed henry. what else is the president saying about the new numbers? >> wolf, the president was certainly not popping any champagne corks in the rose garden today, but he was toasting his own administration's achievements. even though there are a lot of people still not celebrating. >> reporter: the upbeat jobs report is little comfort to greg thompson, who just feels fortunate the unemployment benefits he collects at the one-stop career center in washington, d.c., were recently extended. >> for me, i'm just glad we did, but there's no jobs. i mean

is that this recession is ending right under us right now probably. >> absolutely. the information we're seeing this week on jobs is completely consistent. it's confirming that. back in april looking at forward-looking indicators it became clear the recession ends this summer. sometime between memorial day and labor day. we won't get the exact date for another year. >> the exact date won't matter to most people. >> that's history by then. here it's like what's going on? is it getting worse or better? definitely that trend you went over is shows us it's getting better. it doesn't mean it feels good and the recession is over at this moment because we're looking jobs. you actually have to grow jobs to say that you're in an expansion. >> you have a great map. you have a different map that i talked about unemployment rate, the percentage of people unemployed. yours is different. this talks about job gains or losses. take a look at this map and tell us what's going on. i think it looks terrible. the whole country is in decline, but for four states. >> the red tells you that the trend is down, you're losing job
economists as well as "business week's" diane brady with us in a few moments. and we have here on set, christine romans and suzanne malveaux. we start with suzanne. clearly a lot of challenges. when he gets it grade, from our polling, people are saying there's still work to be done on the economy. >> the one thing you hear from president obama is i inherited this problem. this is a big problem i got from president bush. one thing they accomplished and they're proud of is the stimulus package. you say, look, you can see that recovery in the housing market. you can see some signs of things changing, turning around, they perhaps headed off the worst depression of all time by being in the deep recession. the second thing is they've taken on the auto industries looking for general motors. the cash for clunkers program incredibly popular. billions of dollars have poured in to this. they've managed to increase the sales, chrysler, gm, honda, you name it. taking on wall street. it's a campaign pledge. they wanted to clean up their act. so they've gotten tougher regulations. one of the things
to share your opinions on three platforms, by twittering or e-mailing us. the new york times is where we'll start, a story by katherine rappel, hopeful sign, output declines at slower pace. this is what the authors have to say this morning. the nation's output shrinks at 1% in the second quarter after contracting at a rate of 6.4% earlier this year, government spending, by the first $787 billion stimulus package propped up activity in the latest quarter and accounted for 20% of the country's output. but consumer spending, which makes up 70% of the overall economic activity has continued to fall as fearful americans save more. many economists express concern about what will happen once government spending lets up if consumers remain worried about losing their jobs and their weakened household finances. again, that from the pages of "the new york times" this morning. looking at it from a different take, "the wall street journal" in its editorial section this morning, here is how they phrase it "poised for a rebound" is how they title it. here are some of the thoughts from some of the folks

cemetery. senator kennedy is reunited with his brothers at last. thanks for joining us tonight. i'm will thomas. >> i'maureen umeh. tonight'surial capped off four days of heart-tugging remembrances from boston to d.c. we have coverage for you. matt ackland is live at arlington national cemetery to get us started. matt? >> reporter: maureen, what an outpouring of love and support for the late senator. his body arrived at and uses -- andrews air force base this afternoon and then taken to the u.s. capitol for a short service there. the procession went through the district for the last time, over the memorial bridge and here to arlington cemetery. the senator was buried where he wanted to be, next to his two brothers. as the late senator's body touched down at andrews air force base, the final leg of the long goodbye began. under police escort, kennedy's casket was escorted first to the united states capitol building for a short service at the foot of the senate steps and as the hearse pulled into sight, thousands of hill staffers and membe of the public began to applaud. kennedy's l
speech, and that was on the question of civil rights. i have seen what discrimination at home does to us. this is not a political issue. it is a moral issue. >> i was very conscious that that whole move to strike down the barriers of race, was perhaps the most difficult crisis that the country has come to grips with. and the president wanted to make the progress in civil rights, recognized the moment in terms of american history, so was a very emotional time with the lunch counter sit-ins, the dogs, biting at students from george wallace, and the school house door, with calling out the national guard in southern states. >> go home! >> and it was a time when there really had to be strong presidential leadership. >> we are confronted primarily with a moral issue. it is as old as the scriptures and is as clear as the american constitution. >> president kennedy was the one that called it the greatest moral issue that we face, the first president to do so. and i think that that really goes back to the time of my mother's sort of teaching, and the lessons that she was able to give to us, in te
this morning. they're asking questions about what, in fact, the u.s. may have given up to north korea. peter: americans delighted that these young journalists have been returned. it's great to have americans back on our soil soon of the but there is a question about what price will be paid for this negotiation. clearly bill clinton did a tremendous job in getting these people back. and i think one of the conditions of his trip was knowing that in fact, he would be successful in bringing the americans back. but in doing so, have we restored north korea to the community of nations? and they put out an absolute propaganda statement that the former president of the united states had basically confessed to the crimes of these two young women who were doing nothing else but being american journalists. steve: clinton expressed words of sincere apology to kim jong il for the hostile acts committed by the girls. clinton courteously conveyed to kim jong il an ernest request of the u.s. government to leniently pardon them. peter: i don't think he admitted that they did it. steve: bill clinton would not
the results later on in the program. joining me now is congressman jim moran. great to have you with us tonight. >> it's always good to be with you, ed. >> what do you make of tom daschle being invited over to the white house today. is this a signal that the president may be ready to make a decision on the public option and draw the line in the sand? what's your take on that meeting? iechlt i have no idea what tom told the president, ed. i hope he didn't suggest that we compromise because listening to the beginning of your show, i completely agree with you. this thing doesn't work unless we have a public option. any more than the military care of veterans works without the federal government taking on the responsibility to make sure that every veteran gets medical care that we need. same thing with medicare. it wouldn't have worked if we had come up with some kind of nonprofit cooperative based upon seniors getting together and pooling their resources. when something is important enough, the american people need to get together, get the resources of their government in there and do it r
